1 CHINA Music Traditional Chinese Instruments

2 Chinese Music Chinese music has a distinctive sound, quite unlike any Western music. This is mainly due to the unique sounds and playing styles of traditional Chinese musical instruments (CPP 2008). Watch the following clip of people making music with traditional Chinese instruments.

3 Instruments Instruments are often categorised by the materials they are made of. Chinese instruments can be made of skin, gourd, bamboo, wood, silk, earth/clay, metal or stone. Eg. The strings on this instrument are made of silk.

4 Types of Instruments The Chinese also categorised their instruments based on how they were played. For example, their instruments are either; Blown Plucked Bowed, or Struck.

5 Woodwind, strings and percussion. Blown instruments are like our woodwind instruments, where sound is created by blowing air into the instrument. Plucked and bowed instruments are like our string instruments, where either the fingers or a bow are used on the strings to create music. Struck instruments are like our percussion instruments, where sound is created when instruments are hit with another object, or are sometimes hit together.

6 Sorting Activity You will now see images of 16 different traditional Chinese instruments. Your job is to sort them into the four categories that the Chinese use to describe how they are played. Blown Plucked Bowed, or Struck.
